Patrick founded Norris Legal Family Office in 2011. He combines his own experience as a business owner with his tax planning background to advise individuals, families and business owners from all walks of life and wealth. By combining his strong belief in communication with his small-town values, Patrick has consistently delivered results in helping companies across a wide range of industries to maintain efficiency and minimize risk. He has also demonstrated the ability to establish compliance, resolve and avoid a wide range of controversies related to fiduciary duties in both the family and corporate settings. Most importantly, Patrick continues to install the daily mindset across the firm that all strategic planning is done by focusing on economic growth and protection of the family business.

Patrick is originally from Sandersville, Georgia, the “Kaolin Capital” of the World. He obtained his undergraduate degrees in Speech Communication and Mass Communication from the University of Georgia before moving to Atlanta in 2006 to obtain his Juris Doctor from Georgia State University. He entered practice in 2009, practicing with two boutique tax law firms in Atlanta before starting Norris Legal in 2011. He is licensed to practice in Georgia and now lives in the Buckhead Area of Atlanta with his wife Emily.

Thorough & Proactive!
I have hired Patrick to work on a variety of personal and corporate legal projects for me and my companies. As an entrepreneur, I need my attorney to think like I think and anticipate positive and negative outcomes. Patrick does this very well!

Excellent and Compassionate Attorney
Mr. Norris represented me in a probate matter. He was professional and extremely helpful. He seems to truly care about his clients and takes time to explain things and responds in a timely matter. He doesn't just go through the motions but goes the extra step. I highly recommend him.

Extraordinary Experience - Creative, energetic, diligent, professional
My company hired Patrick's firm on 2 separate occasions, and both times we were blown away by his ability to deliver high-quality legal work in a extremely efficient and responsive manner. In the first transaction, we were selling the assets of a business, and on the second, we were buying another business which was a complicated and quite frankly "sticky" situation. We didn't want to pay the extraordinary rates some attorneys wanted to charge, but at the same time, didn't want to go "legalzooming" either; so we heard about Patrick from a client that had used him, and set up some time for a consultation. We met, and he told me he would think through how to set up the engagement and would be back in touch with me in 3 or 4 days. Well, the next day I get an email with a very thorough explanation of exactly he proposed to do and at a very competitive rate. He told me it would take 2 weeks, and 6 days later sends me all of the necessary documents the transaction will need 99% of the way complete. We met again, and he explained all of the details with precision, giving us creative and frank ideas as to how how we just should position ourselves and move forward. He then wrapped it all up and we were able to close a deal with very favorable terms, much more than expected, which not only covered his fees, but left us with more equity in our business interests. And best of all, he is a GA BULLDOG! If you are a small business that needs representation hire Patrick without hesitation.
